Remove & re-seat the component video cables at both the TV and the DVD player.
If the problem continues, disconnect BOTH ends of the BLUE cable and the RED cable. Connect the BLUE cable to the RED jack at both the DVD and TV, and connect the RED cable to the BLUE jack ob both the TV and DVD. If the RED color comes back and the BLUE is missing, then replace the RED cable (the red cable is broken and will not pass the signal that it is connected to).
If all works, reconnect the colored cables to the corresponding colored jacks at both the TV and DVD player.
If the RED color still won't display, isolate the trouble to either the DVD player or TV by connecting the DVD to another TV w/ component jacks. If the RED is still missing, it is a problem inside the DVD player - if the RED displays, it is a problem with the TV.
The key is having at least a Universal Remote ($10.00 or less) that will operate your brand of TV. Your TV is only looking at "stations". You need to make it see Aux-1, Aux-2, or Line In mode. BUT, another trick is to run the DVD into your VCR (if capable). Select the VCR proper "input mode" (Aux-1, Aux-2, or Line In mode) then the DVD will play through the VCR and it will play through the TV on either channel 3 or 4. Problem solved!
There are several ways to connect the TV to the DVD player but you can only take advantage of the progressive scan option on your player if you use component cable. Component cable has three input jacks on it and they are colored Green, Blue, and Red. Your TV/amplifer must have component input jacks on the back of it to use this cable. If it does, then the input jacks on the back of the TV are usually labled Y, Pa, and Pr. The Y input is for the Green input jack, the Pa input is for the Blue input jack and the Pr is for the Red input jack. Once you have these plugged in you will next need to hookup the audio/vidoe cable that came with your DVD player that has a Yellow, White, and Red input jacks on it. The Yellow input jack is for Video and the White and Red are for audio. Both your TV and DVD player will have inputs for these so just match them up. If you do not have component inputs on your TV then just hook up the audio/video cable and it will work.
the timing will be out of line, thats whats putting in shut-down mode. dis-engage the tape carriage from the running cogs and manually put it in eject mode, re-align the main cogs to their pointers. there should be one on the cogs and on the chassis to help you re-align then re-engage the carriage to its cog.
